Hosted By: Denver SCI HOP and River Deep
Family, Fishing and Fun Day - Fishing, Archery, Lunch.
Participants from: Operation TBI Freedom, Freedom Hunters, Craig Hospital
We have five ponds, a 3-D archery course and a beautiful outdoor pavilion at our disposal today on the Colorado Youth Outdoors property. We have a group of wounded vets and their family members as well as patients from Craig Hospital and staff. There are about 60 people in all. Fall has arrived. The day is overcast and chilly but the kids and adults are excited to fish and try some archery. We have plenty of volunteers and instructors for those who need it. It’s close to lunch time and the Escoffier Culinary Academy always does a great job providing food for our hungry participants. Everyone gathers at the pavilion at it’s a good time to get feedback from the Veteran and Craig Hospital participants about this outing and the ones we do year around with the goal of helping the healing process. We want to learn how we can do better to provide help. Thank you to all the groups, volunteers, Colorado Youth Outdoors, Escoffier Culinary Academy and everyone else who contributes to our humanitarian programs.
